News Freddy Mou, who covers politics and business for the Loop PNG news website, and Gorethy Kenneth, a reporter for the English-language Post-Courier PNG newspaper, “can’t be trusted” and should be fired, police minister Bryan Kramer said in a post on his “Kramer Report” Facebook page on 11 April.Kramer accused Mou of writing a “mischievous and misleading” article in which comments by the treasury minister about government funding for measures to combat the Covid-19 pandemic were “taken out of context and misreported,” as reported by Pacific Media Watch. Kramer also took issue with the fact that the video of the interview with the treasury minister that Mou posted in support of his article was shared by Kenneth on a Covid-19 discussion group for media outlets on WhatsApp.“It is not up to a government minister to decide whether journalists should be fired, and especially when it is because of a report he didn’t like,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “This constitutes an unacceptable meddling in the media’s necessary work. We call on police minister Bryan Kramer to immediately withdraw his accusations against Freddy Mou and Gorethy Kenneth, who simply provided public interest reporting that was particularly helpful during the pandemic.”Papua New Guinea is ranked 38th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. to go further Papua New Guinea: Chinese delegation excludes journalists from three side events during APEC summit Organisation April 16, 2020 – Updated on May 6, 2020 Papua New Guinea: Government minister calls for two reporters to be fired over Covid-19 coveragelast_img read more

Three months on, free expression and anti-corruption groups call for justice for murdered journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia

A specialist in investigating corruption, her work included exposés of the shady secret deals, uncovered in the Panama Papers, that show how politicians and others hide illicit wealth behind secret companies. Her allegations about governmental corruption led to early elections in the country in June 2017.“We gathered to honour a remarkable woman and courageous investigative journalist. We gathered to show the Maltese authorities and the international community that we will not forget Daphne Caruana Galizia, and we will not rest until all those who planned and carried out her attack are brought to justice. We gathered in support of the very principle of press freedom, as an attack against a journalist anywhere is an attack on journalism itself”, said Rebecca Vincent, UK Bureau Director for Reporters Without Borders.“The corruption Daphne Caruana Galizia exposed affects people across Europe, and as Europeans we must show solidarity with her family and stand up for the truth. Justice requires not just punishing those guilty of her murder, but also ensuring that her investigations are widely read, both in Malta and across Europe. European leaders must come together to ensure there is no impunity in this case. If not, they send a chilling message that those standing against corruption may be silenced”, said Katie Morris, Head of Europe and Central Asia for ARTICLE 19.”Until all the perpetrators, including possible masterminds, behind the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia are fully prosecuted, journalists in Malta will work in fear. The UK government must do all it can to ensure this case receives the attention it requires and that, like so many other cases of journalist murdered around the world, justice is not denied”, said Elisabeth Witchel, Impunity Campaign Consultant for the Committee to Protect Journalists.“Today we come together to pay tribute to Daphne Caruana Galizia and to stand in solidarity with her family. Daphne’s murder was an attempt to silence her but we will not allow that to happen. We will continue to share her words and her work, and to call for a full and impartial investigation into her death”, said Antonia Byatt, Interim Director, English PEN.”Daphne Caruana Galizia’s heinous murder has cemented a new climate of fear and uncertainty for journalists, threatening the future of free speech in Malta. On the three-month anniversary of Caruana Galizia’s death, we remember her brave and vital work which continues to hold the Maltese authorities accountable. We hope the arrests of her alleged attackers are the run-up to an independent and fair trial to ensure this will not be a grave case of impunity”, said Hannah Machlin, Mapping Media Freedom Project Manager for Index on Censorship.”Daphne Caruana Galizia’s reporting courageously exposed organised crime and political corruption in Malta. It is vital not only that her terrible murder be fully investigated and those responsible be brought to justice, but also that her legacy in Malta continues, and that corruption and impunity there be rooted out. By gathering to remember her today, we reiterate that those who expose corruption should be protected, not intimidated”, said Patricia Moreira, Managing Director, Transparency International.Co-sponsors of the London vigil included ARTICLE 19, the Committee to Protect Journalists, English PEN, Index on Censorship, PEN International, Reporters Without Borders, and Transparency International. Participants read a statement from Caruana Galizia’s family, and held bay leaves in solidarity with her supporters in Malta.Malta is ranked 47th out of 180 countries in Reporters Without Borders’ 2017 World Press Freedom Index, and 47th out of 176 countries in Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index 2016.

Previously, the rule severely limited how collectors could contact these customers, requiring them to have express consent before calling any debtor on their cell phones through any means.Violating this rule came with high stakes, too. Collectors faced $1,500 infraction fees, class-action suits, and other legal penalties. But now, that all may be changing.Under the new Bipartisan Budget Act, collectors no longer need this express consent, but the FCC can still limit the frequency and duration of debt collection calls. These limitations, along with other recommendations for TCPA implementation, were covered in an FCC Consumer Advisory Committee meeting June 10.The committee has officially recommended the following limitations be put in place in order to protect consumers under the new and changing TCPA:Collectors must have a documented rational for believing a particular phone number belongs to a debtor;Calls can only be made to the debtors themselves, not family, friends, or employers;Rules should apply to both text messages and cell phone calls;Calls must be linked to delinquent or defaulted debt and no telemarketing messages should be allowed;Consumers can request calls to stop and must be notified of this right;Calls should only be made between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m.; andCalls must be related to debts owed to the United States and debts sold to third-parties would not apply.According to ACA International, a resource for creditors and collection professionals, exempting government debt collectors from the TCPA rule will have little impact on the consumer or debt payback.The company said on its website: “The straightforward exemption created by Congress will have very little practical impact in fostering the communication between consumers and debt collectors that is critical to promote the repayment of federal government debt, or in reducing liability for government debt collectors who contact consumers on their mobile telephones using modern calling technology.”Click here to view the recommendations.

Is Renting Really Such a Bad Idea?

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Apartment List Homeowners HOUSING Rent renter stigma Renters Savings 2019-07-10 Radhika Ojha Previous: Powell Signals Rate Cuts in the Cards Next: Freedom Debt Relief Settles CFPB Lawsuit Subscribe July 10, 2019 1,079 Views Renters are more likely to face social and economic pressures than homeowners, according to a new survey by Apartment List.The survey found that 30% of Americans, which included renters and homeowners, believed that there was a negative stigma against renters. The survey indicated that this stigma was born out of:long-standing societal perceptions of success and homeownership andthe present-day economic and emotional burdens of disappearing affordability.The “renter stigma,” the survey indicated, was correlated to age as well as where renters tend to live. In fact, 33% of 18-29-year-olds believed that renter stigma existed, compared to 23% percent of those over 60.Also, over 35% of people residing in dense urban cores of large cities observed renter stigma, compared to less than 25% of those living in non-metro areas, according to the survey. Renter stigma was also fueled by societal perceptions of homeownership being equaled to success.In fact, 86% of respondents said they believed homeownership was important for personal success and 87% said it was important for financial security. Eighty-two percent of homeowners believe that owning their home is saving them money in the long run, while 62% of renters believe that by renting, they are losing money.Apartmentlist.com said that these perceptions remained despite “a growing body of academic research suggesting that many renters today actually have a wealth-building advantage over homeowners.”Interestingly, the survey revealed that homeowners, more than renters were likely to believe in the renter stigma, making it one of the key reasons to own a home. “Among homeowners, those who buck conventional wisdom and say they are losing money by not renting are actually the most likely to believe renter stigma exists. Fifty-five percent of these homeowners perceive a stigma against renting, more than any other group surveyed,” the survey said.On the other hand, it indicated that these homeowners could represent those who were willing to pay a premium just to avoid renting and the stigma associated with it or they could be people who were unsatisfied with homeownership and now saw the perception of renting as unduly negative.The belief in renter stigma was highest among the group of renters who experienced some level of emotional stress whenever rent was due. The survey found that many renters made financial and emotional sacrifices to afford their housing costs in the absence of affordable housing options. Some of these short-term sacrifices included withdrawing money from personal savings, putting less money away for retirement, or taking on additional credit card debt.
